Meighan's record already has 21 previous motor vehicle convictions, including six for DWI and two for DUI, begging larger questions about the state of driving law and punishment. The Tribune adds, "He was free on $100,000 bail before his arrest Saturday, awaiting a December trial on unrelated hit-and-run and DWI allegations from late July. He's also been convicted of escape for leaving an alcohol treatment facility while in custody in 2002." Meighan, if convicted on all charges prior to the hit-and-run, faces less than six years; authorities are still reviewing possible manslaughter charges in Frankl's death.
